UK collaborators visited our new building
Prof. Atul Bhaskar, Faculty of Engineering and the Environment, University of Southampton, UK, Prof. Ipsita Roy, Applied Biotechnology Research Group, University of Westminster, UK, and Dr. Xiang Zhang, Lucideon Limited, Stoke-on-Trent, UK, visited our new building and laboratories in Erlangen-West on 29th July 2016. We currently collaborate with Prof. Bhaskar, Prof. Roy and Dr. Zhang in the framework of the FP7 European project “Reinforced Bioresorbable Biomaterials for Therapeutic Drug Eluting Stents” (ReBioStent) and the H2020-MSCA-ITN project “Drug-free antibacterial hybrid biopolymers for medical applications” (HyMedPoly). The visitors were particularly interested in our state-of-the-art biofabrication technology , exploring possibilities of new collaborations and future joint projects. In the pictures the visitors with Dr. R. Detsch, Dr. L. Liverani and Prof. A. R. Boccaccini.
